Our home is strictly non smoking.

We are a vegetarian family so our custom built kitchen is not well suited to cooking meat inside as there is no rangehood. We do have a BBQ located just outside the kitchen for your use and would prefer you use this if you would like to cook meat.

Our home has been rennovated with the environment in mind. We have solar electricity and hot water. We encourage you to use the washing machine and dishwasher during sunlight hours in order to minimise environmental impact. We have a worm farm you are welcome to use.

Our floors are made of sustainable bamboo. While they are very hard they are also very sensitive to water. Please mop up any spills straight away or the floor will swell and be damaged. Our weekly rate includes a mid week clean of the floors as they require a specialty mop. Please don't mop the floors.

Please respect our wonderful community of neighbours and keep noise to a minimum.

Due to our vicinity to festival sites and the size of our home we have had to enforce a strict no party policy and thank guest for their respect and understanding of these rules. Drug or excessive alcohol consumption and noisy behaviour is not permitted at any time. Only guests named on the booking are permitted on site unless otherwise preapproved at our discretion.

Sorry no fur friends can be accommodated.

Rubbish is included according to Byron Shire Council allocation. Excess rubbish is allowable if you require at an added fee.

This was the 2nd time we stayed in Christina's house. We are a company that brings the team up to stay here for a retreat and go to the festival. Christina is very responsive and helpful, the house is incredible with an amazing view of the lake (which you can canoe on!). Thanks again for a great stay Christina!

Gorgeous home with lovely outlook. Lovely peaceful area close to local sights and amenities. Easy walk or bike ride to the beach or local shop. Everything was as per the description. Christina was a fabulous host with excellent communication. Highly recommended.

The moment we arrived at Christina's beautiful home we felt relaxed and welcomed. There were 8 of us staying and the home was perfect for us. A very spacious and light filled house with plenty of areas to spread out and relax. The beds were comfy and the two bathrooms as well as the outdoor shower were very convenient for us. The house is even more lovely than the photos, especially the view out to the lake. We loved that it was so close to the beautiful beach and close to the local shop. Although we met Christina briefly, she is a friendly and informative host and she left us some nice goodies for breakfast and some easter eggs. We would defiantly stay here again. Loved it, we really didn't want to leave. Chris and Jen

The description of the listing is very accurate. The house is very large, has everything you would need and more, including books, magazines, toys for the children and plenty of dvds. The backyard is for absolute relaxation with lots of different corners where you can just be. There were 10 of us and we all had our own space both inside the house and outside. The nearest beach is only 5 mins walk. The suburb is upmarket and family friendly. There are a couple of eateries nearby (The Shop and Yum Yum Cafe) and a general store. A bigger shopping centre is 10 mins drive (with Coles, Target etc). Brunswick Heads is a 15 mins drive. Christina made us feel very welcome and I highly recommend her place.

My extended family and I all had a fabulous time at Christina's house over the Christmas/NY period. Christina always replied promptly to all communication prior to our arrival, and really went out of her way to ensure we had everything we needed during our stay. We were particularly appreciative of all the baby goods (excellent cot, high chair, pram and a multitude of toys) which made everything much easier for us. Christina met us on our arrival and went over the basics of running the house, as well as giving us useful tips about the local area. She was extremely friendly and welcoming. Everything in the house was exactly as it appeared in the photos online, if not better! We enjoyed the spacious, light and airy feel to the house, the many outdoor spaces to enjoy and the ceiling fans that helped keep each room cool. We also liked added bonuses like the kayaks and amazing outdoor shower, which was perfect after our many visits to the nearby beach. Little touches like fresh flowers, miniature soaps etc, a good selection of cupboard basics and fresh fruit and vegetables on our arrival were lovely. We also really enjoyed the excellent entertainment options - fast and reliable wifi, large television with pay and Apple TV, as well as the many books and magazines in the house. Although the large and well-appointed kitchen, dining and living areas became the hub of our time socialising, all the beds and bedrooms were comfortable, and the bathrooms were lovely and modern. We did have to concentrate on keeping the bamboo floors free of any water, and cooking meat outside on the BBQ was not always straightforward, but manageable. We appreciated the mid-week cleans Christina organised for us. All in all, our stay at Christina's home was a superb one, and we would highly recommend it to others!

Absolutely fabulous! There were 12 of us included children and we all loved Christina's house. The house is very spacious and very well laid out. The description was very accurate. The location is fantastic, lots of privacy, so close to the beach and to the cafe/pizzeria (delicious pizzas), so close to Brunswick Heads by car (or by running on the beach or kayaking for some of us!), also half an hour to Byron Bay. Our highlight was the kayaks on the river, so easy and peaceful, everyone had a go! Even though it was pouring with rain for the first 2 days, we made the most of it by riding the bikes, kayaking, cooking in the beautiful kitchen, playing board games on the huge dining table and watching tv. The house had everything we needed. Christina was a fantastic host, she is well organised and had everything ready for us (thanks heaps for all the baby gears). Her friend, Julia was very welcoming, extremely easy to deal with and always there for us if we needed her. Also we really appreciated the mid-stay clean, another great point during our stay. To start with we thought it was going to be hard not to damage the bamboo floor but we were provided with lots of towels and rugs which made it eventually not dauting at all! We strongly recommend booking Christina's beautiful house, you definitely won't regret it : )

We had a wonderful time at Christina’s beautiful house. We loved the location – being right on the water, and just a short walk to the beach. The house was in lovely condition, very comfortable and perfect for families. Christina was a wonderful host, preparing the house perfectly for our toddlers with cots, highchairs, prams and toys. The Yum Yum Tree Cafe offers excellent service and food and is only a short drive away.
